TalkTalk has launched a new Future Fiber 1Gb and Total Home Wi-Fi package for just £49.00 per month, which it believes is the cheapest 1Gb fiber package on the market today.
TalkTalk’s new package includes two Amazon eero Pro 6 mesh Wi-Fi devices, which debuted in September and offered fast speeds and wide coverage. Total Home Wi-Fi is bundled as standard in the package, the TalkTalk package that allows Future Fiber customers to extend their Wi-Fi coverage by integrating additional Amazon eero devices.
The need for ultra-fast, reliable and affordable connectivity has never been greater – and many companies are gearing up to deliver speed upgrades, including Virgin Media O2, which recently made mega-fast gigabit broadband available to over 90% of its UK network .
The package itself is reasonably priced: £49 per month over an 18-month term includes unlimited use, average downloads of 927 Mbps (uploads of 91 Mbps), as well as the aforementioned Amazon mesh (Wi-Fi 6) routers. Part of the offer is the Fixed Price Plus clause, which means that users will not incur a price increase at the end of the term, and TalkTalk adds that users can expect a range of internet security features, plus free installation.
Asanga Gunatillaka, TalkTalk’s Commercial Director, said: “Unreliable connection and empty spaces in the home have long been a source of frustration, but we believe this will soon be relegated to the history books.” This, of course, has become especially pronounced for homeworkers during the pandemic, where empty spaces are not only problematic but also hinder people’s ability to do their jobs. Many Zoom conversations are ruined by patchy network coverage, regardless of whether users drop money on the best mesh network hardware, as well as the best wireless routers. Your home’s Wi-Fi technology is only as good as the network it powers.
Whether TalkTalk’s Future Fiber package can prove itself beyond just words on the page remains to be seen. However, should it live up to its claims of being the fastest and most reliable offering on the market, it would become one of the cheapest 1Gbps broadband packages on Openreach’s national network and is probably worth a gamble. .
